Over all learning Outcomes for the Scheme:

    Understand and have a good working knowledge of the back ground to the Renaissance

    Technical knowledge of materials used in the Renaissance and the ability to identify their characteristics

    Understand the chronology of the Renaissance and the difference between early and high Renaissance

    Knowledge gained in visual literacy, art theories, context, content,

    Knowledge of materials used

    Knowledge of an artist’s life in the Renaissance (patronage)

    Ability to analyse and critique works of art

    Ability to research and produce a sequential time line in a visual format

Techniques & materials used in the Renaissance (making egg tempera), comparing egg tempera to oil paint.

Problem solving issues:
Making a visual chronological time line on an aspect of the Renaissance, the students will be encouraged to research
their chosen area and use the resources available (The Renaissance News Letter work sheet).

Questions associated with art appreciation: see lesson plans

The time line poses problems that will need to be solved in a visual manner. This will encourage independent
learning, active learning, and group participation in sharing resources and working as part of a team.

Example of a visual time line

Exploring the renaissance, discovering information about a chosen subject


Making a booklet on the renaissance to include:
Work sheets & hand outs
Time line
Egg tempera & oil paint experiments
Independent research

•       Knowledge gained – evident in written essay at the end of the course
•       Students questions apt and appropriate to the subject matter
•       General knowledge of the renaissance

•      Open to suggestions and new ideas
•      To work as part of a team, sharing tools, objects, ideas and techniques

Option for extension of Scheme:
    Further in-depth study of the Renaissance
    Project based on a renaissance artist – Learn about his work in other fields e.g. mathematics, geometry,
        science, engineering
    Combining the renaissance with a practical project like bricolage where the two areas of work are similar
        (bricolage project about discovery and exploration, new ideas, re-birth – using found objects and creating
        something new). I have chosen this area of art history to fit in with the bricolage project I am doing with 4
    Making inventions that were invented in the renaissance
    Mathematics, science and art - looking at connections, making connections
    How the renaissance has affected our lives today through art & science
    Perspective project – looking at the world with and without perspective
    Visit to Florence, the Louvre , British museum to see renaissance art in the “flesh”

Teaching/ Learning Strategies:
• Students create a personal time line of the renaissance – to foster independent learning
• News letter “Renaissance News” to encourage literacy, develop personal enquiry and motivate further research
• Group work to encourage students to discuss the renaissance and personal knowledge
• Visual and written work sheets to ensure different learning styles are accommodated
• Practical application – making egg tempera and learning about pigments – reinforce learning (active learning)
 Demonstrations – supporting visual and aural learning

Eggs x 21
Paper - multi-coloured
Card – white
Felt pens

Safety Precautions:
School bags to be placed under desks
No obstructions in the walk ways
Aprons / old shirts to be worn when mixing egg tempera
No running in the classroom

•    Break task down into small teaching steps.
•    Use oral and visual demonstrations where appropriate
•    Short Term goals – for some students more easily attainable goals within the lesson will help ensure progress
•    Presentation – depending on learning styles- explicit teaching, video, visual aids, aurally, discussions,
•    investigations, demonstrations
•    Instructions – clarifying, shortening, repeating-peers repeat or clarify to partners.
•    Demonstration and modelling – additional demonstrations- step by step approach. Teach key points in small
•    Questioning – asking questions- open ended
•    Activities – wide range of activities planned around a certain theme, individual assignments and group or
     paired work.
•    Seating –use group or specific partners to encourage responsible behaviour appropriate to the lesson
•    Task analysis- breakdown- step by step instruction
•    Peer assistance group work – to support students who have missed lesson or who are falling behind
•    Use Personal Interests- if students have particular interests in the arts (music, dance, drama, or visual arts I will
     encourage them to focus on this area for their flyer if appropriate.
•    Inclusion with peers – I will promote meaningful inclusion between all students in the class but will make
     particular effort to include students with specific leaning differences to be included in group discussions, group
     work and question and answer sessions.
•    Provide options for students - can use pre cut font stencils or cut out font from magazines or news papers
•    Provide extracurricular work for students who move through the project quickly
